Virginia Artists 2014 Juried Exhibition

This was a really nice surprise. Not only one of my paintings was accepted for the juried exhibition, but also it was on a newspaper!

This cat bat came into my dream and stuck in my mind for sometime. So I had to let it out. This process always amazes me. I don’t know where these images come from, and I just let them out. Once I let them out, they start living their own lives.
